Praying for Stem Cell Breakthrough

Just want to share some really cool stuff.

Drumthwacket mansionMy commute takes me through Princeton, the intellectual capital of New Jersey. The governor even lives in a mansion here, rather than in Trenton. I think it is really cool that I get to drive by his house and pray for this unsuspecting guy.

Jon Corzine is known best perhaps for his horrible accident in his governor’s vehicle about a year ago when he crashed at high speed without his seatbelt on, which seriously injured him. So I just pray for his continued recovery.

I also have been taking the liberty to confess over him that he is a defender of life and to build him up prophetically. Currently he has been a big time advocate of embryonic stem cell research, apparently even supporting it out of his own pocket. Doesn’t matter, since I am calling him forth as a defender of life and human dignity, and praying to God to help shape him in this way.

So a couple really cool things of late – in early November NJ voters apparently rejected funding for embryonic stem cell research. This amazed me because it is a state with enormous pharmaceutical and scientific research in its economy and a lot of people (myself included) work in that industry, and as such would tend not to possibly jeopardize our job standing by being outspoken against questionable forms of research that would destroy life. So that was really cool that the voters still rejected it.

Other amazing thing is that there has been a breakthrough such that adult stem cells can do even more amazing versatile stuff than they previously thought.

Just a day in the life. A cool commute, and sometimes I take a detour by that cemetery which is a lot of fun too.

Effectual Fervent Prayer… Availeth Much in Philly

Well the city hasn’t exactly erupted in revival yet… (and I’m glad about that… frankly could we handle more than 100 disciples here per week or month for that matter?) but ONE prayer has been answered. And I believe that it is a sort of firstfruits (or first-burrito, if you will) that many more of my prayers will be answered.

Chipotle

Chipotle is opening its THIRD store in the Philadelphia region soon. Bucks County. (unfortunately Upper Bucks rather than Lower Bucks where I live) This is a blessed day for the City of Love – and I’m lovin’ those burritos.

What better way to minister God’s love, and the heart of the Father than to abduct a recent father, trapped and overwhelmed by domestic responsibility, and drag the poor soul to the local Chipolte. This is exactly what I did to my brother-in-law, the man responsible for making me an uncle.

I sat him down and bought this man a burrito. He deserved it. I even got him some Guac for him and my sister. They are a bit on the high maintenance side where culinary stuff is concerned, so I did have my doubts that Chipolte would breeze through – but they both proclaimed it of the highest caliber available in the Philadelphia region. They proclaimed that they have never tasted Guac of such caliber.
